The support staffs are good but room quality is not food. Travels guys are very bad. I booked a Indica for sightseeing it was very costly. But the driver was not interested to take us to place. I will rate this as a average hotel

We stayed two days in deluxe room. Check in and check out was easy process, staff was very kind and supportive.Room and bathroom was clean and good! they will supply hot water morning and evening time only, room services was good and food too but it was costly and oily.

Hotel is located near botanical garden and Tibet market so u can go by walk!

Minus
1. There no proper room mates, so floor will get wet soon!
2. Old model TV
3. no parking area i parked my two wheeler outside the hotel!

I enjoyed my stay at vinayaga inn ,but for 1700(inc tax) u will find better hotel in ooty and if u stay more than 2days they offer some discount on third day, but @ vinayaga inn they wont offer such kind of discounts.

for the price I paid.. this hotel was a disappointment. @ Rs 1700 per night ( incl taxes)
the Rooms are worst maintained. no paints on doors.. the bed is not kept properly. curtains are dirty.. dark brown Hot water.. which u cant bathe
there is a Bar attached which you cant go in with your family.. the restaurant area is badly maintained.. bad food..
you name anything..its bad...
It was a night mare as i went with my wife for the first time to OOTY.
I made this choice seeing Vinayaga INN @ Kumbakonam, which was just the opposite of this.

when I wrote a mail to this hotel about the bad experience, the mail was never answered

Hi,

We had booked our stay here for a day. We booked it through yatra.com. The hotel pictures looked really good in the pics. But in reality it was not true. Our checkin was at 12pm but we had reached the hotel at 7am in the morning. But the staff was really co-operative. They allowed us to check-in at 7 itself without charging a penny extra. The staff helped us in guiding to the tourist places in ooty.
Now coming to the room part, the room was ok-ok types. There was no fan in the room, no foot mat..so after a bath, if u step ur foot on the floor, u have to walk bare foot and it makes the entire room dirty. There was no place to even hang or dry your clothes. No wardrobes. But only good thing was bathroom was neat.
Overall it was an ok-ok place. But 1700 for this room was too expensive.

Room Tip: Room is close to city and botanical gardens

Pros: Inexpensive hotel. Decent food at the restaurant. Decent service. Large rooms. Newly done bathrooms are neat and clean. Walking distance from Botanical gardens. Lots of shops around.

Cons: No views from balcony. One of the rooms initially felt a bit smelly. Need to pest the guys for tea or coffee beyond usual hours.

Overall: I booked pretty late and most of the hotels were full. I was apprehensive about this one as it was one of the cheapest but I am happy with the hotel mainly because I didn't expect too much at that price. But if you are planning to spent lot of time at the hotel then there's little to do here.

The hotel rooms are not clean ,not worth paying for ,the blankets and rooms were not clean ,only advantage is that it is close to the botanical park.Better to pay little bit extra and try booking other hotels.the walls of the room were water soaked

We visited Ooty during the off season when it had just started raining so we got the suites for quite less. The rooms are tidy and the bathrooms are OK. The locations isn't exactly worth mentioning, it is in the central area with not much of a view. We spent only the night in the hotel so it was enough for us.
